MEZCAL DERRUMBES ZACATECAS
Derrumbes Zacatecas is made of 100% Tequiliana Weber de Azul in Huitzila, Zacatecas. Very close to the Tequila Valley, Huitzila is known mostly for mezcals that are made in the style of Tequila. The Buñelos family is one of the few Zacatecas Mezcaleros that produce traditional mezcals. Pit roasted, tohona ground and spontaneously fermented, Derrumbes Zacatecas is a rare opportunity to travel back in time to experience a more ancient expression to Blue Agave.

Agave (Azul) Tequilana Weber 97.4 proof
(A honeybee fell in the glass before being rescued and my 1st taste. She is mesased up. I took her keys away. )
Pungent, salty umami nostril. A1 Sauce. Dazzlingly vivid and diverse Weber characteristics. Pepper. Citrus. Mesquite. Licorice. Chamomile. Peppermint. Band aid. Bee ass.
Elegant, lean and feminine. Subtle purity. Not as overly revealing as the aromatics. Very clean, clear style. No sense of heat. A unique offering and nothing like tequila despite being from the same agave.
